Atmoshpere Advice Please!!!
Hello Glam Brides! I need some advice on how to create the appropriate atmosphere for my wedding. Ok stay with me b/c I think way outside of the box!
I'm an actress and my fiance loves the outdoors. So our "theme" or essence if you will is Old Hollywood meets Nature. We are having an evening wedding at the National Aviary in Pittsburgh. The ceremony will probably be inside in the atrium that has an awesome glass ceiling and theatre lights in the top of its dome. The reception will be in the rose garden tent outside. (So you see a little of me, a little of him).
The feeling I want is as if Taylor, Honre, Monroe, Dandrige, Becall etc, and Bogart, Grant, Kelly, Newman etc had a fabu party/event but now we're into the after party were only you're most beloved friends and family are there having the time of their lives celebrating your new marriage. Or even you're having one of these old school celebs are having the after party and a couple decides to get married on the spot- so someone finds a wonderful red carpet gown or kept wardobe gown for the dress and flowers are picked from the garden and you wake up the cook fix something amazing and Dean, Frank and Sammie re-tie their ties and stand up for the Groom and the Dreamgirls stand up for the bride. Then Fred and Ginger dance the night away. And everything is sort of dreamy and wonderful.
Any thoughts/suggestion on how to get what's in my head into reality?? Keep in mind I'm on a budget, so I'm totally up for DIY suggestions.
Thanks in advance!
